Darby Karchut is an award-winning author, dreamer, and compulsive dawn greeter. She's been known to run in blizzards and bike in lightning storms. When not dodging death by Colorado, Darby writes urban fantasy for tweens, teens, and adults. She'd love to talk with you. No. Seriously.

"Shape-shifters continue to be a draw, and they will be represented in Darby Kaye’s The Stag Lord (Spence City, Dec.), as a vengeful shifter forces a man and his son to seek the safety of a shield maiden in modern-day Colorado."   

-- Library Journal



2014. What a year this will be! I'll be releasing my second middle grade novel, GIDEON'S SPEAR (February 4th from Spencer Hill Press), and am taking a bold leap into writing for adults with the release of THE STAG LORD (December 2 from Spencer Hill Press/Spence City)


It is also the year I bid farewell to the classroom. I have enjoyed almost every minute (public education is not for the faint of heart), and I will miss my friends and my students.


Still, being able to work one full time job (writing), instead of two, will be a blessing, to say the least.
